You should be able to use any of the methods for bringing in external
resources, these include:

the document() function
external parsed entities.

All of those should be able to accept a URL of type
http://server/cgi-bin/foo.cgi as their parameter. Bear in mind that in
all cases the output from the CGI has to be either valid XML or a valid
external parsed entity.
